Evra: Why Burnley winger Lennon one of the toughest opponents

Manchester United hero Patrice Evra admits Burnley winger Aaron Lennon was one of his toughest opponents.

Evra clashed with Lennon when he was with Leeds United and Tottenham.

He says the winger's pace and style of play would sometimes cause him problems.

"Lennon is the kind of player - if I wasn't 100% fit - he would run behind me, and defenders hate when that happens.

"He had this quick movement and it was also difficult to play against him."
